Nice bar, empty club

The bar at the entrance floor was crowded but nice. Good atmosphere and friendly staff. Aim to go to the club downstairs but that was almost empty at midnight on a Saturday. Stayed in the bar though.

We ended up here a few times in Helsinki as it is open until 4am, so if you're not quite ready to head home when the rest of the bars close this place is great. Its rock themed but filled with a really interesting mix of people!

Loved this bar very much, be warned alcohol is very expensive in Finland. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone, have some drinks listen to some great music, or enjoy some dancing or bands downstairs!!!

Rock and heavy metal bar in the middle of the city near railway station. It is a famous bar and if you like rock and roll music that is the place to go. Summer time there are terrace outside. The owner is very nice.

Just nearby the railway station you will find this rock and heavy metal bar. They have live music on many nights during the week and a dark rock 'n roll atmosphere. The drinks are pretty expensive (6 to 10 euros) but they are the same prices all around the centre of Helsinki. In the summer there are places outside.

The best hard rock & heavy music bar in Helsinki. Upstairs you find a cool bar with pool table and patio during summer. Downstairs you will find a live music venue with cool interior. Highly recommend to all hard rock & heavy music fans!

Need to find a rock bar in Helsinki? Well this one is slap bang in the middle. If you visit on a busy night - it is popular you might not notice the stairs at the back that lead down to the club. A decent stage for live gigs and if you're not lucky enough to visit on a night... More

Go play pool, drink, watch live music and comediennes down stairs. Situated just the otherside of the main square as you come down from SimonKattu this is a good place to go for an easy evening out. However, don't expect any food!
